  1. I am thrilled that these are actual upcycles, not store bought tees sewed to a skirt! Not that that is bad, but your post is truly in keeping with Earth Day. Thanks!

  2. awesome! Most of my sews for my kids are all upcycles... it's amazing what you can do with an old shirt and an old pair of pants

  3. You know I am all about upcycling too. I remember all these projects. I realised I tend to do it more and more as time passes and I only am sad that it isn't as easy to refashion to the hubs because I want to start doing that too.
